This is an excellent question and you have descibed your son's problem very well. I am almost sure that his severe constipation is caused by the soya formula he is on. This should be stopped and your son should drink full cream cow's milk now.He only needs 2 cups of milk a day. He should have lots of water and rooibos and diluted fruit juice to drink. He should also eat plenty fresh fruit.
